WICHITA — Last month, Tomey Shabshab said construction forced him to close his Crossroads Bistro and Steakhouse for lunch.
Then, late last week, he closed the restaurant entirely to make room for Mary Villar and her new Mary's Mexico Cafe.
"We were hanging in there until (she came) through," Shabshab says.
The new restaurant should open early next week.
Shabshab says construction is finally easing — in time for Villar, but not for him.
